International Challenge

$2020 for 2020!

The next International Orthoptic Association (IOA) Congress will be in 2020...
Can your society raise a perfect "2020"?

The Canadian Orthoptic Society (TCOS) would like to challenge other national Orthoptic societies to raise $2020 by 2020!

100% of funds collected will go to developing the orthoptic profession in countries where it does not yet exist.

Final donation amounts will be presented to the IOA at the 2020 Congress.

We have had 3 donors to date.
